Cool, another Barth for our flock! A bustle and a tag axle, too! I love my tag axle 86 Regal. Thanks for the data tag it makes things easier to identify.
Your Barth chassis number: 75061686MC29TC decodes as follows:
7506 manufactured June 1975
1686 Barth coach #
MC29TC Motor Coach, 29 ft, Tag axle, floor plan C
Due to the fact that the Barth company is long out of business (20 years) and the coaches were often made to order for each customer, there are no standard manuals from the company.
Some of us were fortunate to get the factory documents, many are not so lucky, like me (and, apparently, you also)
By far the best place to get the info you need is right here. TRY THE SEARCH FUNCTION HERE ON THE SITE! Many topics will be covered.
The GM chassis info is more generic but useful for vehicle maintainance. As for the rest, many of the appliances have docs from their manufacturers.
Start here with chassis info (starts with 79 but should be close):http://barthmobile.com/groupee...ide_PG_1979-1986.pdf

Good luck with your new project.
